Friday Fun: Shotgun Beer Opener
Update: Check out our review of the shotgun opener, plus find out about the future of shotgunning...
If you've ever shotgunned a beer before, you know that it can be a lot of fun, but it can also be a bit of a hassle. Fumbling with your keys or some other sharp implement, aligning the hole properly, bending back the metal so you don't cut your lips while you drink - it can be a pain, especially after you're a couple beers in. We've discovered a Shotgun Beer Opener specifically designed for all your shotgunning needs.
If you've never done it before, shotgunning is pretty simple, at least on paper. Before opening the beer, you punch a hole in the side of the can near the bottom rim and clear out the jagged metal. You put your lips to that hole, forming a seal, and pop the tab on the beer can. This causes all the beer in the can to have nowhere else to go but your mouth.
It's usually done as a race, but it can also be done recreationally to measure your personal best (not that we would know). The Shotgun Beer Opener promises to take a lot of the fumbling and guesswork out of preparing the cans, and it comes with a keychain hook so you'll always have it when you need it.
For more information, go to the Shotgun Party website, and you can order your own for four bucks from DrinkingStuff.com.
